Dupetastic! Here Are A Few Of My Favorite Makeup Dupes

By Sheila Arkee

As a value seeker to the core, there’s nothing better than finding lower-priced versions of makeup items that perform just as well, if not even better than the higher priced originals.


Here are a few of my very favorite dupes.

Milani Luminous vs. MAC Nymphette

These are so, so, so similar to each other and I love that I can get my favorite pink and gold gloss for $5.

Prestige Primed & Ready vs. Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Knowing I can get a great eyeshadow primer for under $10 seriously changed my eye makeup game!

Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Brush vs. MAC 239 Brush

The Wet n Wild version is definitely a little bit scratchier than the MAC version, but they are neck and neck as far as application ablity.

Coastal Scents Pro Blending Fluff Brush vs. MAC 217 Brush

Save your bucks, this is a straight up MAC dupe, and it works so, so well.

Makeup Geek Envy vs. theBalm Jealous Jordana

These two dark forest greens are identical!

L.A. Girl HD Pro Conceal vs. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

L.A. Girl HD Pro Conceal is one of the best deals on the  market – it performs wonderfully, and for under $5 you’ll be able to stock up!

What are some of your favorite beauty dupes?

    Super dupes! I can’t find the WnW brush anywhere, but I won’t give up. Love the new Milani glosses too!

    I found it at Rite-Aid. It does work really good! Not that bad as far as scratchy.
